While in ferret, do the following.

yes? set mode meta
yes? (your plotting commands)
yes? cancel mode meta
yes? spawn Fprint -R -l ps -p portrait -o filename.ps metafile.plt

The commands "set mode meta" and "cancel mode meta" create a metafile,
which is named metafile.plt.  Fprint calls gksm2ps to convert it to
postscript.  Once the metafile is created, you can convert to
postscript from the command line also.

$ Fprint -R -l ps -p portrait -o filename.ps metafile.plt

(Change ps to cps for colour plots and portrait to landscape for
landscape plots. The option "-o" sets the output file name.)
